Locating Videos (there's a trick!)

Videos will populate between records 2 and 3 of your results when considered relevant to your search. The collection of videos is non-searchable within Education Source. To work within a larger set of videos, try this work-around:

  1. search the word, Education (or other broad term such as teach, test, etc.)
  2. look between records 2. and 3. and you'll see "video results" list of 4500+ videos
  3. click: View all results
  4. under Refine results go to Collection and select, Education Video Collection 
  5. click: Apply
  6. use the search box to locate relevant videos
  7. you may need to re-select Education Video Collection
